HP ProBook 6570b windows 7 pro 64 bit..I cannot delete a picture I down loaded from a web site. I get a message saying " you need permission to delete this". I am the only user on my system so who do I have to get permission from.
Recently, I have a problem with my Dell Inspiron 1420 as it's often freeze and auto shut down or restart. When it freezes, my screen will appear many small black pixels which are scattered around the desktop.
During the restart process, the system will require me to choose one of the few options available (eg. Start Windows Normally) as it stated there that the laptop was not shut down properly.
Remarks: My Dell Inspiron 1420 is equipped with NVidea 8400M GS.
I had apre-installed windows7 on my HP ProBook 6555b. Today I upgraded to windows 8 but now I can't be bale to shut it down. I press the power button (or else I click on "shut-down" from the settings of the charm bar) but it goes in stand by not sht down. I checked the save battery settings and everything is ok. I contacted microsoft, they said me that it is a problem of compatibility with Hp, because windows 8 has a native antivirus and firewall, so it is a conflict between this windows 8 antivirus/firewall with a pre-installed saving energy software of HP.
For a while now, my wireless has been cutting in and out and sometimes takes about a half hour to an hour to be able to connect again. Other laptops in the house connect to the same internet connection just fine. I met a girl last night who was saying how her internet wont connect anymore and she had the same laptop as me so I'm assuming its the computer and not the internet.
even before this issue though, the wireless networks window, when you click on the two computers to see the different connections, it always freezes to a white window to begin with and will take up til an hour to actually show the different connections.
This problem is incredibly annoying and i just want a solid internet connection without it cutting out .
i was just wondering about a couple of things about my d630 and see if i am out to lunch or is there something wrong with my laptop?
1. The Fan, the fan seems to run on full throttle all of the time. i used to have d800 and it will never did that. Its not like it does it when its hot or needs power, but the fan runs at full speed all of the time? is this ok?
2. Battery life - may be due to the fan, but my regular cell battery only lasts about an hour or an hour or 15 max? is this normal .....

When I turn my computer on, it loads to a gray screen saying "No boot image found, notebook will shut down". There is a blue button that says "OK" under this sentence. When I click it, the computer turns off.
So I ordered 2 of these fine laptops, one with the NVIdia 8400, and one with the built in graphics. The one with the built in graphics will no longer turn on at all, it was used for at most 1 hour. Push the power button, it lights for 3-4 seconds, then goes off and you can hear a fan spin down. Holding the Fn key on start up shows all three LED's on solid, and then it shuts down after 3-4 seconds. Pulled/reseated/replaced the ram, battery, wireless, and hard drive. Dell tells me its a dead mobo. So how much should I be scared of a dead mobo after 1 hour of use? Should I let them replace it through their Next Business Day onsite service (which now they tell me will take 2 days), or just send the junk back? My 21 days ends on the 18th.
On the other M1330 with Nvidia graphics, I have not had any issues, with one exception. If I have it on, once in a while I will hear this loud creaking sound, not sure if its the keyboard or not. It sort of sounds like the sound made when you replace the CPU cover panel, so maybe something is just screwed in too tight and its thermal expansion of some sort?
Both laptops have dents in the aluminum palm rest, above the upper left corner of the trackpad. I googled for this and it seems its an over-tightened case screw, so I have backed those 2 screws out a bit hoping it will help.
I'm really not all that impressed at this point with the one laptop. A total mobo failure in 1 hour of light usage (literally just set up favorites in IE and downloaded/installed a few vista updates) seems very shoddy to me.
I have ownwed a 1730 [purchased from Leee73 here] for 12 hours now, I spent a few hours downloading all the necessary drivers from Dell and installing them as it had a fresh install of Home Premium. I loaded 3D Mark 2006 and ran it with slightly underwheling results [12000 marks] But I do know that Vista and some drivers dont do well in that benchmark. I loaded Crysis, R6 Vegas2, GRAW2 and UT3 and I must say that this machine totally rocks. Every game is maxed out in screen resolution and still pulls playable framerates. The image quality is mind blowing. The Logitech LCD is fun in a bunch of ways. Ya this is a desktop replacement, but definatly ultra portable compared to lugging a tower to a lan party or on a camping trip. The I/O ports are all laid out well. THe one thing thays missing is a fingerprint scanner. Imagine going to the toilet at a lanparty, you could simply lock your computer with the swipr of a finger so jealous competitors cant go mess with your regidstry. The webcam is a must along with the microphones [although I have no use for them at the moment] The speakers sound crisp and clear and I hear sounds in games that I previously have never heard on my Quad core 3870 Xfired 1066ram raid powered desktop. I also own a 1710 and anyone who compares these machines simply has no idea what there talking about. I really like my 7900GTX powered 1710, but its no 1730 when it comes to flat out image quality and overall performance.
The 1730 could use some beefed up ram as thats the only thing holding back the Windows experience index to a 5.0. I got a great deal on my 1730, I would buy one new from Dell if a smokin deal came along like when I bought my 1710, but I am too cheap to pay full retail. If you were thing on buying a 1730 but had read others complain, dont listen to them, Its an awesome gaming rig, and even though guys with single 8800s in their laptops can brag of simular 3D Amrk scores, you can rest assured that they would have bought a SLI if they could have. And they secretly deep down inside will forever remain envious.
I thought I would check how long the battery hold out on my new studio 15, which I got two days ago. Surprisingly, only roughly about an hour. Is this normal? When I just unplug the power cord, it says 3 hours.. and then the remaining time of the battery dropped quickly inpproportionate to the physical time past. The whole time I was just surfing the internet, IMing and playing music. The battery is 56 WHr 6-cell Lithium Ion Primary Battery.
For a few months now my Lenovo B575 laptop will become unresponsive if it sits idle for some time, around an hour. If music is playing, it continues to play, screen saver continues to go, but keyboard and mouse are locked up, system is unresponsive. Have to do hard shut down and then restart. I've checked power settings and nothing seems odd.
I've had my inspiron 14z for about 2 months now. From the start I've had issues with the computer crashing (blue screen). It started happening about every hour, and has now increased to about every 20 minutes. If left it will be on an- on- crash- restart loop for eternity every 20 minutes. I have tried updating drivers, I have done diagnostics at startup, not working.
I have one Acer aspire 5740g. i had leave it on and when I came back (had spent over an hour) I found it off. Now when I try to start it nothing appears, the screen is still black and the computer seems to not process anything, but I hear the fan running. is it the BIOS problem or what it can be? browsing is the most common option I've found, also tried to do a power reset and nothing.
My Aspire E1-572 suffers somewhat of the dreaded black screen of death. The computer needs about an hour to start, but when windows finally is loaded, it works like a charm.The "F2 for bios screen" takes about an hour to load.I have done a Acer factory reset.Tested the WD-hard disk - No faults, I've run memtest86 - No errors. I've tried to update the bios from Acer's download section, but all I get is error. Like I said, the computer works like a charm, only it takes about an hour for start up.
I have been using my laptop at home for the past 6 months for most of the time. When I am running the computer I have it charged with the Optimised Battery Health option, so, less than 60% is charged all the time, and I have never removed the adapter if I am using it. But, when I went to sleep I removed the adapter from the laptop.
What happened: Today finally I am taking it out for a breath and it lasts for only an hour!!!!
What was on: I was using it to do some research online only. So technically only wifi was on - not even bluetooth or video or music play. I only ran Chrome, a dictionary software, and my Dropbox. Well, I actually turned the screen into very bright, which was full brightness minus two presses of F11 (to decrease the brightness).
Would it be a cause of upgrading to WINDOWS 8.1?! (like upgrade to iOS 7 on an Apple phone: running latest iOS consumes lots more battery capacity in older iPhone..)
My Studio 1735 has been quite reliable, until today when I closed the lid and left it for an hour. When I came back it simply refuses to switch on at all, so I checked the battery (full charge) and the adapter (green light) so all power sources look good. Briefly, the button on the opposite side of the laptop from the power switch did show a white light, but that's died as well now! I removed the CMOS battery in case it was a logical problem, but it made no difference.
I just bought an XPS14-8182sLV and not even 15 minutes after first boot I've got a loud fan noise and hasn't stopped for over an hour now. I've found other similar threads on here and have tried the diagnostics test using F12 on boot however there were no fan errors displayed.
I have a new Dell Inspiron 13 7000 series laptop. I'm not sure if this is something I accidentally turned on, but I cannot figure out how to turn it off: Whenever I turn on the computer, the default voice speaks the time and date. It also speaks the time on the hour when the computer is on. I cannot figure out how to turn off the voice. I checked the Ease of Access settings and have verified that the Narrator is OFF. How to turn off the voice that reads the time?
Last night I was using my laptop and it had about an hour of battery left when I put it in hibernate. Today, I tried to turn it on and absolutely nothing happened at all.
I tried taking the battery out, hard drive out, and the CMOS button battery out and leaving it for about half an hour. Put it back together again and nothing. I've had it plugged in for a while and the charge light is on, but it's not turning on still...
My laptop (Dell Inspiron 15 3521 model) was working fine until this week. It suddenly slowed down.
Once I turn it on, it works fine but after 30 mins - 1hr, it begins to slow down. While I type words on my keyboard, it would take a minute or so for them to appear on screen in MS Word. My browser would also slow down in loading. When I try to close programs, they would go "NOT RESPONDING" and when I try to open programs, it would take minutes for them to open up. I also tried plugging in a flash drive and the laptop took 3 minutes to recognize it.
What caused this sudden slow down? Is it because of an update? Or does my computer need repair? I've only used it for 7 months.
I have a W530 that is about 7 months old, and the battery, which used to sustain for 4-5 hours with moderate use of the computer, all of a sudden lasts no more than about half an hour. It was not a gradual change, but more overnight. When I look at the power manager, I note the full charge capacity of 10.23 Wh, which is extremely low for a battery that is only 7-8 months old. What would cause such a dramatic reduction in battery capacity in a matter of days, when I did not use the computer differently, or is my battery simply defective?

When I restart my computer, my sound works for an hour or two and then suddenly shuts off. It does this with or without headphones. It works again as soon as I restart the computer, but I'd really love not to have to restart my computer every hour just to get the sound to work.
Also- downloading Windows 8 isn't an option as a lot of my work is incompatible with windows 8.
I have a new XPS 1340, That seems to be having issues with starting up in the wee hours. Monday morning 4:30am I woke up for work, looked over at the Laptop sitting on the desk and the side hinge lights were on.opened screen and saw the login page. I always shut my computer down completely I don't use the hibernate feature.
Several Times last week I noticed when I came home from work and powered up the laptop instead of "starting Windows" it said "resuming Windows". I really don't know if this just started or has been this way since day one. I do know that the battery level always indicates 100% when I shut down and when I start up it's down to about 92% from just sitting turned off? Again I don't use hibernate I "Shut down". using windows 7.
Are their scheduled tasks that can start my machine I have noticed about 34 scheduled tasks in the scheduler can't quite undertsand why so many tasks come pre loaded. Anyway, most have never executed can I just delete them?any help, suggestions, greatly appreciated.
Spent the past 45 min trying to talk to Dell, been on hold guess lunch time is a bad idea.
Could I have a Progrram that is trying to "auto run once" ?
